Per request, a repeat from Friday. Grilled cheese on wheat monster sandwich with mini-marshmallow hair, eyes made of crackers filled with peanut butter and red peanut cracker balls, fairy sprinkle lips, grapes and strawberry jelly.
One peanut butter filled cracker, one red peanut cracker ball, a few grapes and a wee bit of crust remained uneaten. Overall a good eating day for my girl.
I love being asked questions about bentos and how Maisie eats them. Unfortunately, many times the person asking the question leaves no way for me to personally contact them to respond. Please continue to ask questions but if possible, please leave me a way to contact you with an answer. Also, check out the sidebar for bento questions and answers as I try to post and answer all the questions there. Thank you for your interest and following along with us.

Grilled cheese on wheat monster sandwich with mini-marshmallow hair, peanut butter cracker filled eyes with raisins and sprinkle lips, grapes and strawberry jelly.
Today we played with friends at an inflatable jumping place and Maisie was just too busy to fully eat her bento. At the jumping place she finished all the marshmallows, half her sandwich, the strawberry jelly and about half of the grapes. Hey, there were inflatables to climb, jump and slide on, you can't expect a girl to sit still and eat for oh too long. Once home and after a much needed nap Maisie asked to finish her bento and in the end ate everything.

Saffron rice, pork chop, grapes & banana jelly.
Not a great bento eating day today. Maisie's bento returned home with a few grapes and all the pork remaining. She does like pork and ate it last night for dinner but getting her to eat any meat always takes a little coaxing as she much prefers to eat the rice, starch and even the veggies before the meat. Oh well, tomorrow's another day.

Peanut butter on wheat monster with pink fairy sprinkle lips, raisin eyes, Pocky hair and two fig bars.
When I picked Maisie up from school today she told me that she only eaten a little of her bento. She was just being a little tease though because when I opened her bento, she had finished everything except a small amount of the crust.

Chicken & corn dumplings, ham flower, honeydew melon with apple fruit leather letters & numbers and a fruit jelly.
We haven't made any bentos for the past two weeks because Maisie and I were off, home playing together and enjoying our last two weeks of summer vacation. Today though was Maisie's first day of kindergarten!! My wee little Maisie looked so tiny standing next to all the other students, it was difficult to leave her. She though loved school, had a FABU first day, can't wait to go back and did a wonderful job eating her bento finishing all but a couple of pieces of the melon. I love wonderful days and successful bentos!
